    Yep, same for me. Start coffee maker, let out dogs, love on cats and walk in my sewing room to take a visiual of what cats knocked out of place. Then on computer to check out everyones work in the Pictures section.

    Mary just noticed you are in Friendship, my inlaws live there. I love that town--we stayed at a cute little hotel right on edge of town with a beautiful veggie garden about 2 yrs ago when we were visiting.

    Pray, watch Fox news for about 15 minutes. Then get out of bed, greet my sweet hubby then make coffee. Then make breakfast for both of us then get on computer and check my email accounts and my favorite sites. Then greet my two young grandkids as they wake up then I continue to watch the news and pick up my counted cross stitch until I am ready to take my shower. Then my day begins!

    I am with you on this one. The problem is that by the time I read here and Facebook seeing what my kids had to say and my e mail I may as well go back to bed because I have no time for anything then.

    I am with most of you, except I have green tea instead of coffee.

    Feed dog, make coffee, let the dog out, start drinking first cup of coffee. let the dog in, if paper's here, start reading that, if not, start reading on here, let the dog out, continue drinking, reading, let the dog in. Continue doing this until everything is read. Then my day begins and I start accomplishing something. Let the dog out, let the dog in goes on all day long. Whenever he hears anything outside, he has to go out to check it out.

    I make the bed take out the dog. My Husband takes her out at 4:30. I come in and get dressed, let cats out of sewing, where they sleep at night and while we work. Take care of bird, eat breakfast, take dog out, leave for work.

    Grab a juice box, take my thyroid pill, read my Bible, then go on Facebook, read email and QB. Eat after that and then my day starts.

    Gramajo, that is so funny. Dogs require a lot of care don't they? We're too old to have to care for dogs. Takes all of our time to care for ourselves. And cook, and sew, and read on here.

    I'm lucky; I have a fenced yard so just have to let him out, let him in. I sure will miss the company when he's no longer around.

    Stumble down hallway to the bathroom, trip over starving cat. Stumble to kitchen, trip over another starving cat. Start coffee if Hubby hasn't beat me to it, trip over all 3 starving cats at the same time. Feed the indoor cats (they are starving you know, its been HOURS since their last meal). Head towards my desk to find my glasses so I can see what I am doing. Listen to the outside cat whine at the door because (you guessed it) she is starving. Back to the kitchen to get more cat food, feed the outside cat. Finally settle in at my desk to check email, QB etc.

    Push start button on coffee (DH sets it up the night before). Watch some t.v. (a taped show or the news), several times a week work on a pieced or appliqued block. Keep drinking coffee til everyone is up, maybe check QB in the morning, always in the evening. Start the day!

    First thing I do in the morning - most days?
    1. turn off the alarm
    2. get up to potty, turn up the heat.
    3. go back to bed, fall asleep again.
    4. dream crazy, vivid dreams that would make great movies and which I almost always remember.
    5. finally wake again, too warm, sweaty
    6. shower and dress in comfy clothes
    7. sit down at the computer for news, email, facebook, and QB......for hours it seems
    8. finally get around to eating something so I can take meds
    9. make a list of what I could, I should, be doing today
    10. get sleepy from eating, go back to bed "to read"
    11. ......and fall asleep again!

    I LOVE retirement; ain't life grand!!

    Wake up, take my 2 pain pills, lay in bed until pills work, then bathroom, coffee, feed the dogs if hubby hasn't already done it, check email, then facebook and then qb while I drink my 2 cups of coffee then shower and on with my day. Never varies; maybe I'm in a rut but I like my morning routine.

    I agree with you, Jan. Retirement is wonderful. And I too make lists of what I should do today. Doesn't mean I'll do it.

    Dog kisses and playtime and short prayer BEFORE I get up; then they go out, I fix their ice water and their breakfast; let them back in, fix my breakfast and iced tea, fetch the paper, pray, journal, check blood sugar and weight, eat breakfast, read the paper...etc. Don't hit the QB until later in the day, otherwise I'd be here all day instead of doing my quilting!

    I'm newly retired and I'd better watch out... this is pretty much how my days go!!! I'm not accomplishing NEARLY as much as I'd hoped!!! But I am MUCH more relaxed!!!

    Running1-I'm with you---I recently retired and haven't marked many things off my to-do list I made before quitting work!!! I keep telling myself that I am resting up from all those stressful years of working and that I will get started on all those projects soon. Now the holidays are here those projects will have to wait cuz I have to rest up!
